    Too bad you guys didn’t get in another day.I think camping when it’s wet and sloppy is harder than camping in the cold.In the cold it’s easier to stay dry .If you’re dry it’s easier to stay warm .Hard to that when you’re wet.A comfortable camp can make any trip alot more fun…..thanks for the tips and sharing your fishing trip with us.

    i havent camped out of a tent much, but a dry, warm place to sleep will keep you hunting harder and longer. If your uncomfortable at night, cold, and damp you will probably get sick and go home early. I dont want to spend the money, but i am buying a pellet stove to run at night. Nothing worse than feeding the stove after it went out and if you are in Colorado and around Aspens, they burn out so fast and the wood doesnt throw much heat. Bring some coal, it burns up slower at night.

    So I commented earlier about the wall tent with a sewn-in floor….guess I never caught the outside pic and it’s a center-pole not a frame/wall tent, actually. Though I still think I’d prefer sod cloth and vinylized truck tarp. Could not agree more on a good stove. We’ve had…..trials in that that department.

    Gimme a -20 bag….but I have as close to 0% bodyfat as you can get without being dead. And I still put a thin liner in the bag.

    Wood stove and canvas tent combo is great for drying out clothes and gear after a hard day’s hunt…don’t forget butter makes everything better. We put 3 or 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter in our last hot drink of the day to keep us warm when the stove dies out in the night. Looks like a great trip, especially with llamas in tow.

    Dang Beau looks good with a beard, in a tent, and crackling fire in the background.

  12. Greg Francescon on September 19, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Bo knows winter camping.

  13. Thomas Thompson on September 19, 2021 at 11:15 pm

  14. Leslie Nordman on September 19, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Excellent! Thank you!

  15. nmelkhunter1 on September 19, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Great tips. I think 2-5 are only as good as practicing number 1.

  16. C Conant on September 19, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    What brand and model tent is that?

  17. Raven Feather on September 19, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    I went winter camping in the middle of October in Wyoming last fall. The nice thing about winter camping is that you can do it any time of the year in the Rocky’s.

  18. Michael Nelson on September 19, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Great information. Thanks

    Having camped in the winter in the Canadian Rockies, Northern Alberta, and finally Ontario I agree 100% with your 5 tips. My wisest investment was a sub zero sleeping bag, and a closed cell foam sleeping pad. I have camped with and without shelter, including blizzard conditions and freezing rain and been very comfortable. Keeping body heat is pretty much the number one priority.

  20. Cooper Davis on September 19, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    What would be the best type of tent other than the wall tent.

    Safety’s important in the back-country; on-foot or on a mounted-hunt.
    My cousin’s husband disappeared 30-yars-ago during a guided elk hunt in the Colorado back-country.
    He got separated from his party while hunting, and they never did find him.
